As the topic states, I recently bought some new memory for my PC, replacing two lots of old DDR PC2-5200 512mb with two lots of newer DDR2 6400G 1024mb.
After booting up my PC I was asked to re-activate Windows, due to there being major changes to my PC. This is the first time it's ever happened so i'm actually wondering if I made a mistake by re-activating Windows and gotten myself some kind of virus. My PC has started to make a very high pitch, tinnitus-like screech as well. If I turn my PC off using the switch at the back, the noise dies down and eventually stops, only to restart upon turning the PC back on.
My PC tends to crash frequently as well, mainly when i'm using the Internet and playing video games. The PC crashes to the blue screen of death, usually mentioning something about win32, other times, not saying anything expect telling me the PC had to be shut down to save it from being damaged. The PC was working fine up until I added the new memory, which I was told by PC World, would work fine and is backwards combatible with my PC. The memory ovbiously does work, but what is causing my PC to crash so much?
Please could someone lend a hand?
